The Washington Mystics look to stay hot while building on their four-game winning streak. The Washington Mystics are averaging 85.5 points on 45.1 percent shooting and allowing 74.5 points on 42.7 percent shooting. Elena Delle Donne is averaging 17 points and 8.8 rebounds while Emma Meesseman is averaging 13.3 points and 2.3 assists.

The Sun are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games playing on 2 days rest, 0-4 ATS in their last 4 road games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Mystics are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a straight up win and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Sun are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Washington and 8-2 ATS in the last 10 meetings. The under is 5-2 in Mystics last 7 overall. The under is 4-1 in Sun last 5 Saturday games.
The Connecticut Sun have beaten the Mystics twice this season, but now they go on the road where they're not as effective and are shooting just 37.7 percent from the field. The Washington Mystics are riding a four-game winning streak and are winning their last five games by an average of 14.4 points. At home this season, the Mystics are winning by an average of 15 points while shooting 46.7 precent from the field. I'll eat the reasonable number with the Mystics at home based on their current form.
